In conjunction with Sharia, we perform the formal marriage service and assist with state requirements and documentation. The marriage relationship intends to strengthen the family and its values.
The marriage contract is signed in a nikah ceremony, in which the groom or his representative called a Wali accepts the bride in front of at least two witnesses, stating the details of the meher. The groom demonstrates the free will by repeating the word qabiltu ("I accept," in Arabic) three times.
The Mahr (Dowry): Allah says "And give the women their dowry with a good heart, but if they out of their own good pleasure remit any part of it to you, take it and enjoy it without fear of any harm." (Al-Nisa 4:4)
Meher is a formal statement specifying the monetary amount the groom will give the bride. Meher can be due before the marriage, or it can be a deferred amount given to the bride throughout her life.
